Spatial light modulator technology for color and brightness control

By mapping different regions of an image with microgratings of varying period and amplitude, color and brightness can be controlled.  This is a collage of photos of a single image taken at multiple viewing angles.  The image is formed with 3 different period surface gratings and 3 different grating amplitudes.
